28 Video Sharing Sites To Upload Your MegaUpload Content To (Provided You Can Get It Back)

3rd Feb 2012 Social Media, Video Marketing | 9 Comments


Video SharingIf you hadn’t heard the recent news, US authorities shut down the hugely popular MegaUpload video sharing website on 19th January 2012. It had about 150 million registered users, making it one of the most popular file sharing sites on the internet. It was accused of costing £320million in lost revenues on copyrighted material. However the majority of users had been using the service for legitimate uses include high performance video hosting.

The video hosting service, branded MegaVideo, provided users with a premium video hosting service. There are more and more premium video hosting solutions being launched but these are solely aimed at businesses. For personal users, there remains three or fours main video hosting sites that attract a lot of viewers.

If you are looking to distribute your content to other audiences, you should check out some other websites that could well provide an engaging audience for your content. I have compiled a list of video sharing websites that let you upload your videos rather than just link to them. Whilst researching this list I realised that a lot of video sharing services come and go and many of the websites I have previously seen were no longer live. Some had been bought by larger organisations but many of them had just been shut down, most likely due to the cost of running this sort of website.

Here are 20 video sharing websites you can choose to upload your content to and reach a far greater audience:

  2. http://www.dailymotion.com
  3. http://www.veoh.com
  4. http://www.vimeo.com
